    Summary

    "Your word was gift to me."

    Nicolo wishes he had the words to reach out and envelop around Yusuf, to drape him in compassion, in apology, in regret. But he has no words for this,

    or;

    Five times Nicolo struggled to find the right words to say, and one time he did not.

    Summary

    Nicky always had the gift of honesty, he said things as they were without filter, sometimes being almost crude at it, even violent or obscene. He wasn’t much of a talker, not like Joe was, but every once in a while he said something – a single line, sometimes even a single word – so heavy that left Joe utterly speechless.

    Or, three times Nicky said something disgustingly romantic to Joe without realising it.

    Summary

    Nicky knows his time is up in the most innocent of ways, he stubs his toe against the table in one of their safehouses and it doesn’t immediately stop hurting. Instead, it hurts for hours. His suspicions are confirmed when he cuts himself in the kitchen the day after and the wound doesn’t seal the way it usually does. He hides in the kitchen, cooking for hours until it stops bleeding and he can pretend it isn’t there.

    Summary

    Sing me, o Muse, of the love of Yusuf and Nicolò,
    stronger than hatred and all-consumer death,
    one that saved many men from the house of Hades,
    strong-greaved Greeks and Trojans alike, tamers of horses.
    Sing it from the moment when they first slew each other,
    These enemies, bound by fate to face eternity together.

    Or: what if Nicolò and Yusuf met during the Trojan War instead of the crusades?
